Overview

Jacob Wesson is a timecop from 2040, sent back to WWII London to stop the assassination of Britain's war leader. The assignment plays out with apparent ease, but the jump home goes wrong, stranding Jake in war-ravaged 1944. Jake's team, including his long-time girlfriend, is desperate to trace him before something else goes wrong. Stuck in the past, Jake must pull from his training and blend in. He clings to the one familiar face he can find, Amy Jenkins, a war widow whose life he saved during the assignment. Drawn to each other by their loneliness and thrown together amid the terror of war, Jake and Amy look to a future together. But Jake's future cannot let him go. And when his bosses finally find him in 1944, Jake faces a terrible choice: risk unraveling the modern world or let Amy die.
